Primary 1

At Dawn House School we provide a high-quality EYFS education giving students a secure and confident start to their school life. We provide our students with a safe and stimulating environment that builds on each individual’s needs and interests; this is why the EYFS classroom is a mix of students from ages Reception up to and including Key Stage 1. Learning will be fun, engaging and challenging to help every student to reach their full potential.


The Learning Environment:

The Primary 1 classroom gives the students ample opportunities to develop their gross motor skills and meet their sensory regulation needs. The outdoor area mirrors the learning happening inside which allows students to learn where they feel most comfortable. The ability for the students to move freely between indoors and outdoors has promoted a calm environment in which they are able to learn better.


The classroom layout has been planned to allow for child led learning where the students can pursue their own interests. Students interest are also incorporated into to lesson planning to support with engagement.


The Curriculum:

We plan an exciting and challenging curriculum based on our observation of student’s needs, interests and stages of development across the seven areas of learning (Communication & Language, Personal, Social & Emotional Development, Physical Development, Maths, Literacy, Understanding the World, Expressive Art and Design) to enable the children to achieve. The seven areas of learning shape the educational programmes in EYFS at Dawn House School. Observation is a key component of early years practise with practitioners spending the majority of their time interacting and playing with the students.
